One of these days, people will stop using Magento...
Because Newegg is bad at PR, have a bad incident response plan, and bad breach counsel.
Not just that. When they transformed themselves from a tech vendor to a "marketplace" they abandoned interest in customer relations. Their approach is no longer about building a good customer bond. Instead they simply try and rely on price/availability and a name that used to mean something.
I'd consider 2013 to be recent.
I blinked my eyes and was suddenly transported from 2008 to 2018, so 2013 falls within the realm of "lately" to me
I mean, I still talk about how I don't like this new music, like the Spice Girls and Britney Spears.
Prices aren't that good anymore either. Just about everything on new egg is matched by Amazon. And Amazon has free 2 day shipping. Every once in a blue moon New Egg will be cheaper.
I have better things to do than check my bank account every day to make sure someone didn't drain it with my debit card numbers which are likely now compromised. Didn't take but 20 minutes out of my day to go get a new one.
Debit cards are way worse in my experience - the credit card companies were easy to deal with, told me to ignore any of the fraudulent charges if they showed up on my next statement and issued me a new card. The bank made me swear up and down that it was fraud, sign some paperwork, then wait (with my checking account overdrawn) for something like a week before finally restoring my balance. Not cool when you're in college and have no credit cards (still in the mail) and your bank accounts are drained.It’s much easier to proactively get a new card, than have your CC company deactivate your card for fraudulent activity right before automatic payments from half a dozen companies get declined.....
Take my word for it, it’s a PITA

I had no problems when my AMEX was replaced due to fraudulent activity. In fact, all of my reoccurring payments that I had set-up for the card were automatically moved to the new card and I didn't run into any hiccups.
That only works for recurring payments scheduled through the AMEX, I have several that are setup where the payment is just charged to whatever card I have on file through the service provider.
My only purchase of the year was on Aug 9. Still going to call the CC company. They have reissued my CC 9 times. They must love me by now.
Are you saying that you don't think those "costs" don't come back around anyway?
I mean, you know that they do right? They just get pushed onto all of us as a whole so they are harder to see for what they are.
Example; Some business soaks up 1 million in 2018 in fraud loss. The same company now claims 1 million in loss against their profits, adds a bit more in additional costs associated with the losses, and now they pay less in their taxes.
What's more, they don't stop their. They hire fraud prevention services who charge fees which are tacked onto the costs of goods. It's perpetual and the consumer does pay for it.
Damn, I bought some hdds from them last month via Paypal.
Any idea if Paypal would be safe?
